Project: Tamiya TA-07 Pro – My Road to the TCS (Tamiya Championship Series)

A long time ago, I competed in the TCS (Tamiya Championship Series) event – it was so long ago that I don’t even remember what car it was!

I got the idea, though, to take one of Tamiya’s popular TA-07 Pro chassis and, with the addition of some TCS-legal aftermarket parts and some tuning, put the car in the A-Main at the 2018 TCS event.

So, here’s Part 1 in the series. Enjoy.
